Due to the current COVID-19 public health crisis, the Photo ID Office is currently closed through June 30, 2020.
RIPTA complies with federal transit guidelines and offers half-fare boarding to seniors and persons with disabilities, regardless of income, during OFF PEAK hours. Passengers enrolled in this program are issued “Valid Off Peak” photo identification cards. These passengers pay full fare during RIPTA peak service hours (7am-9am and 3pm-6pm) on weekdays. They can also use a Medicare Card to board.
If you are over the age of 65 and are also low income you may qualify for further assistance under RIPTA’s Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program for Low-Income Seniors and People with Disabilities. Passengers who qualify for this program are currently able to ride for free.

In order to assist people in obtaining their RIPTA ID cards, the staff from RIPTA’s Photo Identification Office visit senior centers around the state every Friday on a rotating schedule.
Every week, RIPTA’s Photo Identification staff travel to communities throughout the state to provide bus passes to qualified seniors and individuals with disabilities, who are unable to get to our offices in Providence. The Photo ID Office, which is open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to Noon and 1 pm to 4 pm, will be closed all day every Friday to provide photo identification “road trip” services around the state. The road trip schedule is posted below.
